Blümlein im Garten

Language: German (Deutsch)

Blümlein im Garten, 
Schaut euch doch um,
Steht nicht so traurig, 
Steht nicht so stumm!
Denn wißt was ich weiß 
Und sah: 
Liebchen ist da, 
Ist da!

Sie schüttelten sich, 
Sie sahen sich um,
Und balde [erklang]1 es
Im Kreise herum,
Und balde fern 
Und nah:
Liebchen ist da, 
Ist da!

Little flowers in the garden

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Little flowers in the garden,
Gaze around you,
Do not stand so sadly,
Do not stand so mutely!
For know ye what I know
And saw:
My darling is there,
Is there!
They shook themselves,
They looked about,
And soon it [rang]1 out
All around in a circle,
And soon far
And near:
My darling is there,
Is there!
